Looking to purchase this Jeep and would like to know about what this should cost so I can make an offer accordingly. I appreciate any help. Thanks. :)
What year is it and what are the miles? Is it something you are going to fix and keep for yourself or are you trying to make some money?

It's a 2001 w/ 98,000k on it and it's for myself.

Your looking at about 1000-1500 in parts if you go used. And about 1000 in paint in labor at an budget bodyshop. So I would say 2000-2500 should fix it. So go to kbb.com and get the private party value and deduct 2500 and thats what I would offer, maybe less because you have to consider the fact that you have used parts on your car and the time it has to sit at a body shop. I buy wrecked cars all the time and fix them and that one would definately be considered a total if they were going through the insurance company.

It would make a difference about who currently has ownership of the jeep. Is it privately owned ? sitting in an insurance pool lot ? Bank repo ? Sitting in a junk yard ? At this point the vehicle is only worth the sum of its individual parts. I agree that its a total, which explains why its sitting. Before anyone can give you even a ball part repair price we'd have to know if there is frame damage, rear suspension damage, trunk floor damage, quarter panel inner structure damage. Any buckles in the roof ? Need more info. Could be a good deal to buy and fix up for yourself but I don't see it a real money maker.
Another thing to consider is the title clean?
A salvage title is going to kill the value when you sell it.

Thanks for the replies guys. It would be for my personal use. A private person has it at his house. My body guy says it probably was a total. I cannot look at it to see if the roof is buckled. He says to stay away. I just dont want it to be 7-8 grand to fix it. My body guy say also when you go to the DMV it will show up as a salvage. I guess I should just stay away. What price is the cant let it go price. Lets say I can get it for less than 1,500 or even 1,000 should I do it.

Email me the vin number at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do a carfax and tell you if it is a salvage or not. I would buy it for a thousand if the roof is not buckled. 1800 is the most I would pay even with a clean title.
